no access to who the donors are. mitt romney has said in, um, one of the republican debates that he would be for, in his ideal future system, um, the super pacs would merge with his campaign, anybody could give him unlimited amounts of money, but there would be immediate disclosure to -- so the people would know and be able to track any concern about the appearance of corruption. my guess is that's sort of next place to go to. and in this age the sec is a particularly dysfunctional body. trevor can tell you more -- [laughter] the than me, but, you know there is no good proportion mechanism we have. we've had for a while for most of these things in any real time, and also the disclosure mechanisms, though they're improving, remain far behind what is possible today. it should be the case that as soon as they're cashing the check, there's no reason that that money can't show up in a database that is posted online, um, from any group that's spending money and influence. so that would be my guess of where you go next. i think the other political thing that will happen here is that, um, whateve

to be some of these mistakes that the romney campaign is manging. do you think that's correct that they're making mistakes? >> i disagree, as you might imagine. with immigration, for example, there was a fascinating moment during a republican partial debate late last year during which you had candidates all agree enthusiastically that we need immigration reform, and wolf blitzer kept asking them, what about the border fence? literal hi, they were having this little conversation amongst themselves, and it was completely ignored because, gosh, that doesn't sound like a border fence to we and, of course, mitt romney gave a speech oriented around facilitating family unification. so this is treated as an utterly marginal issue, yet you have more skilled immigration than you do less skilled, and also you have more representation from asia than you do from latin america. that doesn't necessarily mean any kind of sea change, and certainly mitt romney's not faring terribly well with asian-american voters. it is also true that the asian debate is framed by some of us, so i think that's important
, and it's also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate. i'd like to ask you about the 47% that we heard about this week. governor romney, in some remarks that were taped at a fundraiser earlier this year, talked about how there's 47% of the country that does not pay federal income tax. he said that they believe they are victims who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. governor kaine, there's over a million virginians who fall into the category of not paying a federal income tax, part of that 47%. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think more generally about whether too many virginians, too many americans by extension are too dependent on government for basic needs in their lifesome. kaine: david, i heard those statements, and i -- you can say something off the cuff that you regret, but i really deeply disagree with the sentiment expressed by governor romney. i don't meet virginians who think they're victims, and the notion th
